Hello everyone! Welcome to the A to Z of Sex. I’m Dr Lori Beth, an intimacy coach and psychologist and I am your host. We are working our way through the erotic alphabet, one letter at a time. I created this show to explore the erotic alphabet to help you learn more about desire and expressing your desires, discover ways to spice up your relationship and create that sizzling relationship you have always wanted through solid science, real life stories and interviews with an exciting variety of sexperts. We will be talking to people from all walks of life – ordinary people, people who have a story to tell about sex, people who are experts in some aspect of sex or sexuality, psychologists, coaches, psychoanalysts, philosophers, doctors and scientists. Knowledge gives you the power to create relationships that bring you lasting satisfaction and joy. When we reach the end of the alphabet, we will start again. Each time looking at different words and phrases, each time allowing us to expand our knowledge even further. I also write a weekly blog and a monthly newsletter called the A to Z of Sex. Each medium allows me to look at more terms and explore more strategies to increase sexual pleasure and to create that ideal intimate relationship. There is a workshop with the same title too, to help you create your own sexual alphabet. I invite you to write in with your questions for me or my guests to email@example.com Each week I will make time to answer a question or two. This week we start at the beginning with the letter A. A is for Arousal which is where sex begins. There is no sex without arousal. The definition of arousal is ‘a state of alertness and readiness for action. The physiological and psychological state of being awoken or sense organs stimulated to a point of perception’.

Because arousal is a physiological state, it can be perceived positively or negatively. When you are angry, you become aroused. Your body will display signs of arousal like a rise in temperature causing a red face or flush, or sweating, heart beating faster for example. We become aroused when we are frightened as well.
